Description:

Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) are computerised systems which store and analyse spatial or geographic data. Data stored by its coordinates in 2D, 3D or 4D space are related to relational databases, which can be used to perform spatial queries and analyses. These tools are used in many real world applications with the Major focusing on environmental applications. The major contains a related course on spatial statistics, a relevant course on coordinates systems and courses on remote sensing. Remote sensing is used to capture images of earth and undertake image processing to extract information to be used in GIS
